Local images disappeared


Between January (last time I needed it) and now my local images on all my LXD instances disappeared without warning!
How comes? Why?
So now I need to remake all my custom images from scratch?
Or is there a way to retrieve them somehow?


It sounds like you have been affected by:

Thank you Thomas for your quick answer.
So I understand that my images are truly gone and I need to remake them.
Anyway, good that you guys have a way now to catch such things in the future!

Unless you had backups then yes, unfortunately they are gone I’m sorry to say.

If you have an instance that was created from one of the deleted images, you could copy it to a new instance, remove any instance modifications you made to it, and then use lxc publish to re-create the image.
